Ask your doctor to change your prescription from a high-cost brand-name drug
to a low-cost, but equally effective, generic drug and you could save as much as 80 percent. But while switching from brand name to generics would naturally save you money - especially if you are a long-term medication user - you would need to discuss the matter with your doctor or healthcare provider first.
The term "generic" is used for any drug that is made with the same active ingredient that is no longer on patent, and is no longer protected by FDA exclusivity. They are almost identical to brand name drugs - except for that one major difference: they are, on average, 80 percent cheaper.
